Keflavík is a town of around 8,000 in the Reykjanes region in south-west Iceland. It has now merged with Njardvík and Hafnir to form a locality called Reykjanesbćr.
Founded in the 16th century, Keflavík developed due to its fishing and fish processing industry. Later its growth continued from tourism and Keflavík International Airport which was built by the US during the 1940s. The airport also holds a significant NATO military base.
